Emily Murphy House

Location: Garneau
Architect: BR2 with support from NEXT Architecture
Contractor: Delnor Construction
Scheduled Completion: Spring 2018

Project Description:

Built in 1912, Emily Murphy House is a historical two-story home located on a single lot in Edmonton’s Garneau neighbourhood. The home has Craftsman style features with panelled doors, square staircase balustrades and newel posts inside, and eave brackets and exposed rafters outside. This renewal project includes a full exterior historic restoration of the home and will replace the home’s foundation. These renovations will maintain the character of the original structure so Emily Murphy House will meet historic resource designation requirements.
